Ravage Me is my very first Ryan Michele read and I couldn’t be happier. Although it’s another motorcycle club book for me it was different from what I read in the past. Yes it has your bad boy biker dudes and your club whores that sleep around but the main character, Harlow, is a badass biker chick and the story focuses around her and her life.

Holy motorcycle man! Ryan Michele brings us a sexy and dirty motorcycle romance that I felt was different than the other MC books out there because not only does this one include 1 sexy and fine man but it’s also packed with a strong willed, sassy, and shoot and ask questions later female lead.

Harlow is one badass bike bitch and I loved her. She is strong willed, determined, a fighter, doesn’t take crap from anyone and knows how to hang with the best of em’. She is rough around the edges and most certainly doesn’t talk like a lady and that is why I was drawn to her so much. Oh and she can take care of herself on a motorcycle which has me super jealous.

This chick is so badass that if I was ever in the same room with her and not on her nice list I would literally be like this.

She doesn’t take crap from anyone male or female and take on anyone who tries to cross her. After being set up and spending 2 years in prison she is trying to settle back into the life as an MC’s daughter. She doesn’t mess with the brothers in the club because she will never want to be a club slut. Sticking to her guns and following her rules as always been easy until she stumbles upon a new member, Cruz, than everything she has always vowed not to do flies straight out the window. It isn’t like love at first site at all in fact Harlow couldn’t stand Cruz because he was more than open about wanting her underneath him and on the back of his bike and he always gets what he wants.

When talking about Cruz your sexy tattooed bike bad boy that knows how to work a women’s body the only motion that comes to my mind is….

Cruz had my blood boiling from the very start. I found it very sexy that he was determined to win Harlow over and help her break all her rules was going to be very fun. Cruz is not only sexy and determined he is passionate about what he wants and is a god in the bedtime.

Although Harlow finds herself starting to fall for Cruz she knows she needs to steer clear and focus on getting her life back together after being away for so long. But of course someone who sets someone up and goes to prison doesn’t give up so easily and will stop at nothing to ruin Harlow for good.

As things start to heat up between Harlow and Cruz so do things trying to take Harlow down. Now with Cruz and Harlow growing closer and Harlow stepping up to be the mother to Cruz’s son her enemy list is quickly growing and she finds that the people she thought she could trust are not very trustworthy after all. That’s when shit hit the fan and Ryan really pulled me into this story.

One minute Cruz and Harlow had me all….

The next minute something would happen and Harlow’s badass self would take charge and she made me…

And then I found myself grinning and doing…

When Harlow finds herself thrown back into a dangerous situation that could not only cause harm to herself but harm to her family that she has loved so much will see continue to fight for the family she never realized she wanted or will she put the safety of Cruz and his son above herself and willingly walk into the pits of hell? Can Cruz save Harlow in time before the bounty on her head is collected or will he be too late?

Ryan Michele brought us not only a MC book that we love but sometime a bit different as our leading lady is more of a badass biker herself that will take matters into her own hands. Shoot first ask questions later, that is how Harlow lives her life and when her enemies start coming out the woodwork she only has 2 choices, kill or be killed? Does she make it?

Let Cruz and Harlow ravage you with Ravage Me. Steamy, sexy, dirty and badass is waiting for you all you have to do is jump on, hang on and ride.

This book is about Princess and the MC club life that she was born into. I LOVE biker novels and this one definitely did not disappoint. The storyline was fantastic and always kept your attention with many twists and turns along the way.

The story begins as Harlow “Princess” Gavelson is released from prison after 2 long years. She is angry, and determined to get revenge on the person(s) that sent her there. She is the VPs daughter, and learned at a young age how to take care of herself and those that she loves. She adores the club life, and gives as good as she gets. She is smart, funny, sassy and sarcastic. I kinda wanna be her when I grow up!

“Growing up with the Ravage MC’s hasn’t been easy. The life, the world, was different than civilian life and I learned from the best. Ever since I was a baby, my life was the club”

Cruz is a newer member of the club but no stranger to violence and death. He is deeply grateful to the MC for taking him in, making him their own and is extremely loyal and protective. They feel like family to him. He is hot, resourceful and a total alpha male, though he can take a step back and hand over control when needed. He meets Princess and there is an instant attraction that neither of them can deny.

“She was everything that I never knew I wanted in a woman. She was strong, fierce, smart-assed. And I got all that in the course of a couple hours”

“It had been way too long, if ever, since I felt this kind of passion from a man, and I was lost in it”

Ravage Me takes you through their relationship, trials, obstacles, club life and Princess’ chance at the revenge she been planning since she was locked up. She is thrown into situations that she never thought possible but very much welcomed. I really enjoyed the storyline, and that while making Princess strong and independant, she was still feminine and vaulnerable.

I love the secondary characters in the book as well. Sometimes with an MC book it can get confusing because there are SO many people to involve and introduce. It is very easy to get lost fast! Ryan did a great job of introducing the characters, their descriptions and positions within the MC. I didn’t find it hard to follow at all which was fantastic because then I could focus on other details! The other men in the MC are funny, loyal and easy to love as well!

I cannot wait for the second book in this series, called Seduce Me, which I hope will not be far away
